    Just came across my membership certificate for the Special Forces Association. I'll scan that today or tomorrow and present that as evidence. You have to be Special Forces in order to become a member. If that is not satisfactory for some, then that will be to bad for them. Once I submit this evidence I expect the matter to be closed.

    is this something between ex military types? I am sorry but I am not ex military and as far as I am concerned if you say you are that is fine with me. I would take you at your word. If its something that people feel the need to lie about that is their problem not mine. Do not see what difference it really makes other than having to sit though stories that are not really true I guess...

    I really appreciate the welcome. My comment relating to my Special Forces affiliation was in response to a good natured comment from another member regarding the many members of SF, Seals and other special ops guys living in Dumaguete. In response to another member that is non military and has taken me at my word, I would say thanks for your support. And yes, it is infantil and just a lot of BS macho posturing. I have been out of the military for a long time and am way past that. Twice I was asked by this individual to provide proof. After the first message, I brushed it off, but then I go a second message. Basically I was asked to present my Challenge Coin which is a bit difficult to do when you are half way around the world. It's a way to extract a drink from the person if he is unable to present the coin. Whatever!. I'm going to scan the document in order to shut him up an that should be the end of it.

    and what's wrong with that? I thought the first requirement upon joining here was to speak about one's self. I have talked about the things I have done haven't you? If someone doesn't want to take me at my word i would simply tell them to p*ss off....

    Oh OK...so it was about incorrect thread placement...gotcha! Have to say that is an aspect of forum etiquette that I have real difficulty with, confirmed thread hijacker here. In my mind once a thread is born to the world its pretty much free to ramble wherever ones heart cares to take it! :wink:
